    Did you at least upgrade the swaybars?

    They both look good!

    The Rallye is missing the gold trim and pinstriping, though

    LOVE the old Pinto stuff...

    Yeah, I haven't been around much lately (other priorities)...

    On the Monroe Handlers, regardless of what the box claims, the original Handlers were ALL 302 powered cars. The first one that Jack Roush actually built the engine for was punched out considerably, but it was not a Cleveland...

    And if anyone wants to assemble a "correct" one, let me know. I helped build one in 1:1 scale (and took it for a rip last week...DANG was that a blast!)

    Sorry I haven't been too active lately, or I'd have replied a while back...

    I talked to Mike last week, and he says he IS still casting, but he's been having some problems with his web site. I'll try to remember to post up when and if I hear more or I notice his site is up and running again...

    Try finding Mustang II parts, THEN tell me how hard it is to find foxbody stuff...

    Sorry I forced you to hit the link to a thread you were unable to determine the subject matter of by simply reading the title before you left-clicked on it...

    While I'm a Ford guy, and probably always will be, I find it ironic that VW has been mentioned as having a good product...You DO know that VW is a State-run auto manufacturer, right?

    And how many would be all up in arms if GM had been allowed to simply shut down due to their own incompetence and their lack of ability to compete?

    I just got the vacuum leak fixed on the Offy Dial-A-Flow intake, replaced half the lighting harnesses, and started preparing it for daily driver status...

    Looks good, and hardly resembles the bits I sent ya

    I'm glad someone could get some joy from it, as it would have simply been a carcass to pillage from in my bits box.

    Sadly, I've been distracted working on my 1:1, and haven't actually sat down at the modelling desk in well over a month...

    And I'm pretty sure that Grabber Orange is still available at any automotive paint supplier.
  14. Blue coyote added a post in a topic The spoiled girlfriend....   

    First thing to do: walk out and leave her there.

    Second thing to do: give her parents a swat upside the head for not teaching the spoiled little brat any social skills...
  15. Blue coyote added a post in a topic Favorite Car of all time?   

    You want to talk odd?

    My favourite car of all time is the 78 King Cobra. Modified, of course.

    Not just because I own one, though. I've loved the Mustang II since the first one I ever saw (which happened to be a 1:25 AMT "Python" kit, BTW), and has continued through almost twenty years of owning them.

    As it sits, mine is a modified King Cobra, Black on Black T-top, cammed 5.0 automatic (4-speed waiting to go in), 68 4-bbl intake and Holley 650 (probably swapping for an Edelbrock 289 Torker highrise intake), Flex-a-lite electric fan, 2.79 gears (4.10 Trak/Lok waiting to go in), 225/50R15's on the front, 295/50R15's on the rear, H4 headlight conversion, all-red taillight conversion, and currently in the middle of replacing the blacked trim with chrome and swapping to a 74 header panel and grille.

    And since I mostly build models of Mustang II's, this HAS helped me build better models. Any time I get stuck on how to make a model more "correct" I just have to look in the driveway, the garage, or the shop for perfect reference material...
